About This Class

In this class I will guide you through the process of turning your doodles and drawings into iMessage sticker packs that you can sell on Apple's iMessage App Store. We'll look at what is required to publish a sticker pack app (bonus - no programming required!), how to start with a doodle in a notebook and end up with an iPhone-ready, digital image to use in iMessage, as well as some of the tools you'll need to pull this off. Once your sticker pack is submitted and approved you can sell them if you want or let people install them for free - it's up to you!

Topics we'll cover:

  • Required software and hardware (Submission to the Apple App Store does require a Mac of some sort that can run a current version of Xcode.)
  • Iterating on your doodle.
  • Digitizing your doodle.
  • Adding color to your doodle.
  • Building the sticker pack app in Xcode.
  • Getting your sticker pack on your own device for testing.
  • Creating app screenshots.
  • Submitting your sticker pack to the App Store.
  • Subjects to avoid.

*It should be noted that while creating a sticker pack does require the use of Xcode, Apple's main software developmentĀ kit, submitting a sticker pack for the App Store does not require any programming skill. Apple has made it very easy to add your images to a sticker pack project. Also, you don't need to be a great artist. Some of the most successful sticker packs on the App Store are no more than scribbled doodles.
